At this point, I think creativity occurs during the activities. My students are allow to work and share with a partner. They are allow to share ideas and answers so that if one gets stuck the other one is their to guide them. Since my student are allow to work together, I believe that were critical thinking and problem solving also occurs. I make sure that my students have the opportunity to check their answer with their partner and then with students around them. There have been a few times where some students don't agree with each other. They know that they can discuss their answer with out being judgmental of others. I believe that communication, discussion, and collaboration occurs almost on a daily basis. My students understand that they can ask question if their not understanding something from the material. I have an open door policy so if they are struggling with something, they can come to me for guidance.
I try to teach literacy every day in my class. Since it's a language class, understanding and knowing the language is important to their learning so I try do different strategies so that they understand the material. At this point, I am trying to implement more technology into my class. For now, I am doing more my presentation with either PowerPoint or prezi. It has allow me to walk around the room while I am presenting and assess my students if they are understanding the material.
